Las Vegas – March 14, 2023 – The highly-anticipated Durango Casino & Resort by Station Casinos is poised to become the ultimate destination for luxury hospitality off the Strip, anchored by the arrival of three new, immersive concepts by industry trendsetter, Clique Hospitality. They include Mijo Modern Mexican Restaurant, a fresh coastal Mexican culinary experience; Bel-Aire Lounge, a chic cocktail bar, each opening this fall; and Bel-Aire Backyard, a stylish poolside retreat, opening in late Spring 2024.
“Station Casinos has been an incredible partner for more than a decade, and we are thrilled to come together once again to introduce new destinations to delight our incredible community of Las Vegas locals,” said Andy Masi, founder of Clique Hospitality. “Durango Casino & Resort brings a level of hospitality to Southwest Las Vegas you’d normally only find at the Strip’s top resorts, and we are thrilled to announce that Clique Hospitality will be a part of this stellar property.”
These inventive new bars and restaurants embody Clique Hospitality’s commitment to providing exceptional dining and drinking experiences. Mijo, Bel-Aire Lounge, and Bel-Aire Backyard will offer the highest levels of quality, service and sophistication while inviting guests to indulge and unwind.
“The addition of Clique Hospitality to Durango brings an elevated experience for our guests,” said David Horn, General Manager and Vice President of Durango Casino & Resort. “Their venues will offer quality cuisine, exceptional service, and a place for our guests to experience an upbeat vibe in an upscale neighborhood setting.”
Mijo Modern Mexican Restaurant: Tastebuds travel south of the border at Mijo Modern Mexican Restaurant, where guests will embark on a journey to experience the diverse flavors of coastal Mexican cuisine and spirits within an immersive setting. Mijo will offer a progressive menu where prime meats, fresh whole fish, decadent desserts, and elevated street food favorites are presented with an unconventional twist. Guests can explore Mexico’s most beloved spirits with Mijo’s one-of-a-kind tequila and mezcal program guided by “catadores,” also known as tequila experts, in addition to tequila lockers that hold hidden gems. Inspired by the storied history and natural beauty found throughout Mexico, multiple rooms and an outdoor patio surrounded by lush greenery set the backdrop for Mijo’s alluring atmosphere, transporting guests to different parts of the country.
Bel-Aire Lounge: As the stunning centerpiece of Durango Casino & Resort’s main floor, Bel-Aire Lounge will seamlessly blend sophistication with high energy. Bel-Aire Lounge will bring together old-school glamour with contemporary flair; the chic cocktail bar will boast modern furnishings adorned with opulent gold and brass finishes, all complemented by the electrifying sounds of vinyl records spun by talented DJs and live music across various genres such as rock, hip-hop, pop, and indie. Alongside its captivating sounds, bartenders will be masters at crafting specialty cocktails that tantalize the palate. At the same time, a selection of sweet and savory small plates and desserts will complete the gastronomic experience.
Bel-Aire Backyard: Nestled among a landscape of towering palm trees and verdant shrubbery, Bel-Aire Backyard will invite guests to indulge in the ultimate poolside oasis – an aquatic haven to bask in the sun, relax and dance to music. Bel-Aire Backyard will provide an unparalleled VIP experience, complete with private cabanas, oversized daybeds and inviting pool chairs. Lavish yet serene, Bel-Aire Backyard will be a lively retreat that offers respite from the chaos of a casino. To further elevate the poolside experience, Bel-Aire Backyard will serve an array of thirst-quenching drinks and a vast menu of upscale eats.
